DHL uino rni payment will be extended if requested In writing The Debt, Like Banquo's Ghost, Will Not Down. One of the Humboldt papers remarked the other week that fanners interrogated about tilings political and governmental were more concerned .by the steady rise in the government debt than anything else. This suggested that the republicans would do well to base thpir campaign this year on criticism of democratic financial irresponsibility. That the growth of the debt has become an important political issue has been recognized in current events. Henry Wallace, keynoter f ']• the recent democratic state convention, do- -••oted most of his address to the debt and endeavored to minimize its importance by pointing out that while government obligations have gone up private debt has gone down—a specious argument of the kind that confuses most people and needs an expert to expose Us fallacy. Then, again, the political importance of the debt was recognized 'last week by the two spokesmen for the respective national committees, Charles Michelson and Franklyn Walt- iaan, who devoted to it the "columns," which they prepare weekly for s uch newspapers as v/i!l use them. Mr. Waltman devoted his "column" to the Wallace speech, and Mr. Michelson, after comparing our debt and taxes with great Britain's --to our advantage, of course — pointed out that our bonds sell far above par, adding sarcastically that "Bankruptcy is so imminent, and the confidence of the people is at such low ebb, that every issue of bonds sold by the treasury is over-subscribed from six to 14 times, though the last issue bore only 2% per cent." Mr. Michelson neglected to say that some persons believe the bonds are kept at par or above by the government itself, through fed- and sundry hamlets of this country made upon nlm as soon as it was known that taxpayers' cash was again to be flung about for the asking. At last reports it appeared that after the three quarters of a billion has been scattered about (and next fall's election thus made safe tor deserving democrats), there will be some $855,000,000 dollars worth of projects on file .'or which no funds have .been allotted; a situation which looks alarming and may cause Kmmctsburg, Spencer, and Eagle Grove to vote republican unless something is done about it at Washington. And of course eomething'Kvill be done about if. The ambitious communities in question, all over the United States, having had their sleeping lust aroused, will form pressure groups, and the spenders in the government will listen, and next winter congress will be asked to take care of all these deserving demo—par- uon, ambitious towns—and nil the congressmen with towns thus disappointed in their districts will immediately perceive that another overpowering emergency has arisen, and the money will be voted, just like that! What a blessing it is to have a paternalistic form of government, the kind Mr. Ezeklel is for—(see Knoxville Journal clipping in another column). Of course it wasn't envisioned by the stern patriots who wrote the constitution, ,but, after all, what are the fore-fathers and the constitution between friends? This Isn't the horse-and-buggy age, and it is time to make America over. So let us be joyful while we may, and let us continue to pile debt on debt till the structure JCKins to lean like the Tower of Pisa. Em- netsburg, Spencer, and Eagle Grove' shall lave their slices of Uncle Sam's money, even hough uncle is getting in pretty deep; and uaybe Algona, too, by working its imagination overtime, can in due time think of something t won't spend its own hard-earned cash for.

But, after all, why should a hired writer publicize opposition argument? No doubt Mr. Waltman also pur- eues the same policy. What's a hired writer lor, unless to put everything in a favorable light for his own cause and to minimize or ignore whatever doesn't look so good? Let us forget both of these paid propagandists and turn to the facts, which in themselves are startling enough. The national debt on June 30 this year exceeded 37 billions, and the total public debt—federal, state, and local- aggregated some 57 billions. This was $1800 to the average family, whereas in 1914, only 25 years ago, the family total was $269. In 1913 our public debts represented about 2.7 per cent of our wealth. Now they represent around 20 per cent. Last year our federal government spent the astonishing—not to add alarming — total of $17,000,000,000! This was some $540 to the family, and it compares with $34 to the family Jr. 1913. Duplicated 1C times! For goodness' sake, who gets the money and how can such a record be justified? Since 1931, in only seven years, accumulated federal deficits have reached the enormous total of $25,000,000,000, and the current fisca year is expected to add four or five billion: more. Last year total government costs took 24 per cent of the national income, against 16 per cent eight years ago, only nine per cent in 3913. The taxes last year took 18 per cent of the nationol income—nearly one dollar out of every $5 bill. The yearly interest on the federal debt now nearly equals the total debt of a quarter of a century ago. On all public debt the interest alone today exceeds the total cost of all political units—federal, state, and loca —in 1913. It was remarked above that the facts are startling enough. In all conscience, is it no so? Is it not high time to take stock and find out whether government is giving back value received for the astronomical sums we are spending on it? There, indeed, is a question worthy of the talents of Messrs. Michelson and Waltman—the biggest political, economic, and government financial question that this or any other country ever faced. T , ( , else in the way of pre- Deal athletic or mental exercise; it's unking up ways and means to get a govern- lent appropriation for some community reject.

It is disappointing and discouraging to discover that if Emmetsburg, Spencer, Eagle Grove, and numerous other ambitious Iowa towns are depending on the PWA to help finance projects which they have figuratively sweat blood to think up they may have to go bootless despite their heroic exertions. For PWA is run by one Harold Ickes, the 67-(or thereabouts)-year-old secretary of the interior who recently redemonstrated the say- ang that there is no fool like an old fool by marrying a 25-year-old girl who had no sense of the fitness of things either, and, Harold has found that the $750,000,000 spending money allotted to him by generous Mr. Roosevelt fails by naif to me«t the demands which the various (irul> While (Crabbing's Good.
